The movie has never really been about gold but about character, and Bogart fearlessly makes Fred C. Dobbs into a pathetic, frightened, selfish man -- so sick we would be tempted to pity him, if he were not so undeserving of pity.
Like The Searchers, this is so brilliant that the only real effect of the other versions is to make you want to watch the original again.
